At Whitbread we are committed to providing development opportunities that support our colleagues develop their skills and meet their career aspirations. This includes removing barriers to entry and promoting diversity throughout the organisation. With service at the heart of everything we do, we will continue to grow the range of apprenticeships and create opportunities though work placements and work experience.

Since their launch in 2012 we have given over 3000 Apprenticeship industry qualifications with over 800 Apprentices in learning today. Achieving qualifications whilst working has seen one in four of our Hotel Manager population participate on an Apprenticeship programme.

Whitbread has recently partnered with Lifetime Training to deliver Apprenticeships for our colleagues and further develop Apprenticeships across our brands in the future.

"Each Apprenticeship has taught me different skills and leadership helping me progress as well as becoming the first person to complete all levels and winning the Samuel Whitbread Apprentice Award" Charlotte Maloney.
